I listened to the speech at the end of a long, tedious day. I glued my eyelids open to stay awake. What a waste of time [and my sleep!] How about that Clint Eastwood, eh? Or the I’m Marco Rubio speech? Did these two pre-speech speakers steal the show from Mitt Romney? At least they were more interesting.
The ‘real’ Mitt Romney did show up: he said absolutely nothing. Nothing of substance. All I learned is that Barack Obama was a failure. Did I miss anything more?
Oh, yes. He has a 5-point plan to create 500 trillion jobs!
I’m wondering how that job-thing plays in the minds of the independent voters who were [or were not] tuned in. Twelve million jobs he promised. Small business he said. How? Apparently with that 5-point plan. Here’s the plan:
• energy independence;
• improving the education system for our children and our workers;
• taking advantage of trade globally to open new markets and export our goods, while stopping China’s cheating;
• cutting and capping federal spending, and getting on track to have a balanced budget;
• being the champion for small business to grow and create jobs.
That’s it. Were you looking for more substance?
Yawn. I need a nap…
